View From The Beehive in July

July sees the launch of our live streaming and begins with Kenneth Branagh’s “Romeo and Juliet”, starring Lily James and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) as the star crossed lovers beamed straight from the Garrick Theatre on Thursday 7th July at 7.15pm.

We also have a special afternoon on Sat 30th July at 2.15pm with “World Cup ’66 Live” from Wembley. This is not just for footie fanatics but music lovers and those who’ll enjoy a bit of ‘60’s nostalgia (after all we did win the world cup!) There’ll be sporting heroes and some of today’s biggest acts performing fab numbers from the past like Lemar, Reef, The Vaccines and the Troggs! There will also be a licensed bar.

Phil Beer recently played to a full house here at The Beehive with his buddy and the other half of “Show of Hands” Steve Knightley, Now Phil’s back and we’re delighted that he is bringing his brilliant 5 piece band too! It would always be worth the trip to see musicians of this quality but it is the repertoire that makes a Phil Beer Band gig extra special so don’t miss this on Sat 23rd July at 8pm.

We have some other great films throughout July at The Beehive cinema; “Sing Street”, “Demolition” and “The Daughter”  along with a Discover Arts screening on Friday 22nd July at 7.30pm of St Peter’s & The Papal Basilicas of Rome”, a sumptuous HD documentary exploring Rome’s four Basilicas and their famous artworks.

Sue King is back with her much loved folk café in the Beehive Bar on Weds 13th July from 8pm, everyone is very welcome to this friendly informal session. Come and play, sing or just rock up and listen.

This month’s Nostalgic cinema is “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” on Friday 29th at 2pm, reckon a few folk will be tuning up to sing along to this fab musical, looking forward to seeing the Stetsons and checked shirts. These dementia friendly screenings are for anyone to come along to enjoy, all for only£3.50 with free tea and biscuits in the bar and plenty of chat afterwards! See y’all there!
